CL Hawks Volleyball Release 2016 Schedule
Canyon Lake’s first team to win a district title has released their schedule for this coming year.
With the change of districts, Canyon Lake, will have 6 games needed to get the same amount of games as last year’s district had 3 extra schools to play.
Looking at the schedule, the Hawks, have really upped their opponents and will be playing several perennial schools in the world of Volleyball.
That should help in preparation for district play and the The ReSporter had a chance to talk with Head Coach Kim Paisley about their next season in preparation of defending their title even if it will consist of different schools.
The ReSporter: Do you feel the non-district games will help prepare you for district? And what will you take from them?
Coach Paisley: “Our preseason matches like Poth, LaGrange, Wimberley, Navarro, and LaVernia will be great for our preparation for district. All 3 of our tournaments are always fun and tough! They will be great for working on different line-ups, team chemistry, and flat out competing!”
The ReSporter: With district having so many fewer games, how will that help or hurt this upcoming Hawk team?
Coach Paisley: “I had to schedule more preseason matches to compensate for the loss of district play.”
The ReSporter: Do you have any idea about the district this coming season?
Coach Paisley: “I feel the teams in this district have great programs such as Boerne, Fredericksburg, and Bandera. They all have reached the Regional tournament or deep into playoffs the past 2 years. We came from a tough district and we will be ready to face these tough teams. Remember, we have a district title/reputation to defend. I know we are in a different district, but we are coming out and letting them know who we are! We are fired up and working hard!”
The ReSporter: I know Boerne advanced last season past our team, will they posed the biggest threat in your opinion?
Coach Paisley: “I believe Boerne will be our toughest opponent, but will not discount the others. Every match needs to played like we are closing out a district title.”
The ReSporter: You lost a lot of Seniors but you also had a strong JV and Freshman club, how will that group of new girls mesh with the returning girls?
Coach Paisley: “We lost 7 seniors last year, lost 7 seniors this year, and we will have 7 seniors again this year. 4 of them are returners. I think we have a solid group of girls coming back and they are hungry!”
The ReSporter: What are your hopes going into this new year?
Coach Paisley: “We will carry on that winning attitude, display that passion for success, and continue to carry out the traditions/expectations that have been set by our former Hawk VB players!”
